The Best Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Ever!


 

I have searched near and far for the perfect Banana Bread! Actually, I spent hours on Pinterest testing and playing with recipes until I formulated the Best Banana Bread of all time…Well I think so anyway. What I have discovered is a somewhat healthy, super chocolatey, and incredibly moist (I really don’t like that word) treat for my mouth. If you want experience what my mouth is feeling-

 

You’ll Need:

1 stick unsalted butter (1/2 cup)

1 1/3 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup greek yogurt *

2 cups flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

3/4 tsp salt

1 cup mashed ripe bananas

1 cup chocolate chips

1 cup nuts (optional- I like nuts but not in my banana bread, so I don’t add these)

*You can use┬ásour cream if you don’t have greek yogurt

 

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl cream together butter and sugar with a hand mixer. Then mix in eggs, vanilla, and greek yogurt.
  2. In a separate bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. The slowly add the dry ingredients to the butter/sugar mixture until combined.
  4. Use spoon or spatula to fold in bananas, nuts, and chocolate chips.
  5. Pour into large loaf pan and bake for 1 hour**

**You can also use two small loaf pans (bake for 35-45 minutes) or you can make some muffins (bake for 25 minutes) !

You want the Banana Bread to be lightly browned on top. Toothpick Check!
